We walk like ghosts in empty halls, 
We lock the doors and hide the keys  
Allow no sunshine, rain, nor breeze  
To pass through our windowless walls.
And all but silent spend our days, 
Lest face our fear to be without  
No laugh, no tear, no sigh, nor shout  
Be heard within our lightless caves.
And though pretend we're satisfied 
With our selfish doctrines, demands, 
Our souls take us to distant lands; 
Dare us to learn, and cease to hide
Embrace new colours, rhythms, themes  
And give ourselves a chance to grow  
The gentle, guiding winds to blow
That we might live our secret dreams.

Author's Notes:

This is great- absolutely love it. It reminds me of something similar to the work of Auden- finding the light within the darkness.
